    Hello - migrating from one wordpress theme to another - on my old theme the gallery accepted multiple uploads for the portoflio.

    Can we do that on myriad (or other themes?) The only way I can see is to upload one image at a time.

    I have 447 images!

    Hello jonnyredhat,

    You can use the Wordpress media uploader and then the default [gallery] shortcode that comes with Wordpress. Here is an example of what it looks like, http://themes.mysitemyway.com/myriad/galleries/wordpress-default/.

    I don't recommend using 447 images on a page though as it will take a long time for the user to download them all.

    I would like to keep the style and portfolio of the Myriad theme.

    They are not all on one page - some have 60 images. They are very small photos showing textures.

    Is there a way to upload multiple images and have it in keeping with the theme?

    Each portfolio post will need to be created and have a featured image set but after that is done you can insert multiple images into the post content.

    So the answer is no - you must create each portfolio item by hand.

    That is a real shame :(

    Each portfolio post is different with it's own title, content, and images, so really there is no logical way of mass producing them unless you want them all blank.

    I understand, and appreciate the continued support.

    Is it then possible to have Fancy Images as a gallery and upload multiple photos?

    The fancy_images works like this,

    [fancy_images]
    URL to your photo
    URL to your photo
    URL to your photo
    [/fancy_images]

    If you know the addresses to your photos then you would just paste them there.

    That still means having to do each image individually.

    Something like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/ allows you to upload multiple images in one go which will automatically create a gallery of those images - this is opposed to uploading one at a time like we do now - or uploading them all but adding a URL for each one.

    Maybe it is a feature possible for the future...

    I'll move this to feature requests and we'll see if we can get something worked out.

  11. That would be excellent.

    I was looking for the same answer as well as it happens.

    For my images, I'm happy if they're just thumbnails without any title, teaser, date etc (just like NEXTGen Gallery) but I liked the option to vary the layout of thumbs so there's a larger featured image for instance and the rest smaller thumbs as you can with your galleries.

    Having used the NEXTGen Gallery before, I was very disappointed that I'd need to create a Portfolio post one at a time with the Awake theme - the gallery feature was one of the reasons I chose it. But I'm going to see if I can use a combination of the 2 - Using the Awake Portfolio for some feature images and then using the NextGen Gallery for the bulk lower down the page.

    ...now I've got to find out if you can alter the order of Awake's Portfolio images - I've not found a sort order like Wordpress has for the Pages. :S
